and super vocals from Donna and Bobby to help get us over Jerry's bout with laryngitis.
Many great reviews below to showcase the song highlights. IMHO, an excellent Passenger deserves a shoutout too !!!
Subject: Really Hot and Smoking
Subject: Uptown Winter '78 Run- Night 2
I'm partial to the third night of the run (and the excellent SBD recently uploaded), but this night rivals it and might even be its best. My first set highlights include a strong Half-Step opener, a drippy They Love Each Other, and a smoking Let it Grow to close. Second set, though, is where it's at. The boys came to play. This scarlet-fire is better than previous Chicago one on 13 May '77. Samson is a rager, and then we're treated to a nearly 60-minute suite that includes Terrapin->PITB->drums/space->Black Peter->Truckin'->Good Lovin'. So good, there's no encore!
Subject: Pretty rare...
Subject: Shall we call it by a name...
how much star candy to dole out?
-Very nice Half-Step!
Passenger-a Phil heavy tune.
Jerry has it going on -tonight!
(I like Donna is working tonight)
Tenn Jed-This song is rough on Garcia's voice.
played this pretty regularly so far in 78.
El Paso- good. Jerry prominent towards end
Candyman- Ouch! sounds like a few of my old tapes.
Minglewood- When is this not a rowdy rocker!
T.L.E.O.-Jerry got raspi-ness going. well played.
Let it Grow- unusual intro, riff on that strumming
Wow about 6.30 in Garcia goes for it in a big way.
Just took my breath away. Got my attention.
Good set with strong opener and stronger closer, perhaps a tad short for 78 but closes on a HIGH!!!
Scarlet >Fire- good jams,enjoy Donna moaning low
SAMSON & DELILAH-very nice! they are groovin!
P.I.T.B>-very intricate,very Phil,very Weir,JERRY!
Mini----- Drumz > Space,
B. Peter>This is an intense Black Peter!!!
(Lengthier than original versions of 1970)
Intro into Truckin is excellent / Sweet!!!
Truckin> Good Lovin' (That's a nifty double shot.)
Sounded like they were almost going to do a Playin' reprise but it's Good Lovin'
Always get that La Bamba vibe/ flashback!
Donna a large part of this show.
Second Set- great stacked tune selection
-IMHO-in top 5 of January 1978
Subject: Yes, show is...and The Candyman Patch doesnt have Johnson speaking
Subject: Scarlet Begonias
However, this is a decent show from a year that had potential. Between Minglewood and Terrapin I was neither bored nor thrilled.
Subject: Incredible Sound Q
They Love Each Other through Playing In The Band is very good GD.
Subject: First show ever
Subject: Philin it up!
Subject: Better Than Expected
For instance, Minglewood really smoked, and Keith sounded interested in playing. Ditto for They Love Each Other. The Scarlet/Fire (which is a typical favorite), while not the best ever, was high-quality throughout. Even Good Lovin at the end was fun to listen to.
I'd recommend this show if you aren't looking for a way out-there vibe, but just some good songs well played.
Subject: This show is HOTT!!!!
Highlights for this head are:
Subject: 2nd set lights the fire
January '78 was a good month!
Subject: In the shadow of the moon...
